    Thanks for the feedback guys! I'm honestly not sure of the bag size. I just know that it's the second smallest TitleBlack Pro bag they have. I would like to get a smaller size bag but don't want to get a smaller version of the one I already have. Not that it's a bad bag. It's great. But it's starting to split open right at the TB lettering for Title Black.

    If any of you guys can recommend a nice, speedy, smaller sized bag I'd appreciate it. Looking for something nice and snappy..lol

    Thanks Guys-Alex
    The small 8x5 title classic is smaller in size than the 8x5 title black pro, but it's also lighter and feels different off the fist. It takes a little time to adapt to it

    here is the 8x5 classic in use, Oh Yeah!



    one note: You say you are a beginner? If so, you need to realize going to a smaller, faster bag also requires the skill to control it. If you can't do that, the extra speed it may yield is meaningless.

    Still pretty new so I've never replaced a bladder yet. I was reading that the plastic bladders are also pretty good because they have a lot of bounce. Not sure how that applies when doing tricks though.
    IMHO, the bladder material doesn't apply at all to doing "tricks". The ability to do tricks (ie.....advanced combinations from all sides of the bag with fists and elbows) is directly related to the skill and control of the bagger, not the material of the bladder. A bagger that has the skill and ability to control the bag movements should be able to quickly adapt to any difference created by the bladder or bag materials.

      I would not recommend the Leone speed bag, just do a search on one of my threads here on the forum and you'll see what happened to the bag for me, Yah the bag is turbo fast but that doesn't mean sh*t when the bag falls apart not only on the outside but the inner lining came apart, seeing how you hit, you will waste your money on this bag. Don't get it...ralph

        I'm beginning to see what you mean Ralph about the Leone, one of the rivets is not staying fully clasped and I have to press it tight periodically. Plus I like to feel a little resistance when I'm punching and this thing is so lite on the hands I might as well be shadow baggin. If I can find a 5x8 bag, somewhere between a Leone and a fighting sports 5x8 in response and feel I think i'll be a happy camper. How bout Title either classic, or the yellow 5x8 or Balasz. Once again I need to feel some feedback from the bag. I really enjoy watching Alan banging that classic around, so it must be a good choice. Hopefully Alex we can get the skinny on this speedy but meaty bag choice.

          That's the first time I'm watching that video, Man is that slick, I think you've just solidified me getting a classic along with all the other videos you've used it on. Thanks Alan.

            Alan,
            I LOVED watching that video ! I worked on that same routine this morning after seeing you do it.

              They ALWAYS come out... here's how I fixed mine; I used some mini blind cord.
              It's still holding strong!

                  Great vid! That's a great looking bag too!
                  I wish I would have gotten on a little sooner and seen some of the great advice. I ordered a bag offline last week and it made it here a couple of days ago. I wound up getting an 8" x 5" Pro Mex. So far it seems to be a nice improvevent from the 6" x 9" TitleBlack. It's pretty fast and it doesn't take much to get it moving.

                    Just a quick update video of me practicing on my new smaller bag. Still a little rough around the edges but getting there I suppose.
